I have two new sets of squeezed flat beads made in the colors of fall leaves. I made a frit mix in the same color mix for these beads. I love fall and part of it is because of the changing of the leaves. With beads we can wear the changing leaf colors on our wrists and necks! I made one set in transparent and one set in opaques. I do take special orders if you want just one or two colors for your creations. Right now my whole shop is 20% off to celebrate Fall!
I have found an old online glass lampworking friend who had moved to Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico several years ago from the good ol' USA and has found a new passion: helping the young girls ( and men ) who live in the town around her! Laura Brito has started a workshop where the girls and guys learn a trade as simple as producing goods for the jewelry and metal craft community! I must say I am impressed and want to let you know about it. They make Copper Blanks, Brass Blanks, German Silver Blanks, Sterling Silver, Bronze Blanks, Soldering Supplies, Bezel Wire, Gunmetal Wire. Enameling Shapes and Forms Galore! Their goods are sold in two stores online one is LBStudio on the Artfire Website. Here is the blurb from the SupplyDiva Etsy Store where their goods are sold:
